Altria Group still likely to be acquired after FDA news,says Wells Fargo
After the FDA announced a new approach towards nicotine Friday, Wells Fargo expects Altria (MO) to be "a big beneficiary" of the approach, since it will spur much higher purchases of reduced-risk products and smokeless cigarettes, leading to share gains for Altria, according to the firm. Wells believes that the FDA's announcement may increase the value of Altria to "close to $90 per share" from $80 per share previously, and it continues to expect the company to be acquired by Philip Morris (PM). Wells thinks that tobacco stocks could experience an "overhang in the near-term," but it says the news "could be positive" for the sector over the longer term, as it thinks the large tobacco companies will ultimately benefit from the change in consumption trends. British American Tobacco (BTI) is another publicly traded company in the sector.

Altria Group upgraded to Sector Perform at RBC Capital
As previously reported, RBC Capital analyst Nik Modi upgraded Altria Group to Sector Perform from Underperform, as he believes the FDA's tobacco announcement on Friday was "very much in line" with industry expectations despite the surprise to investors. Modi, who still thinks tobacco stocks can perform despite major overhangs, keeps a $62 price target on Altria.
